First off, we have a necessary evil. Having darker hair, sometimes hair shows up more where we would rather it...not. I used to have it waxed, and then sugared (a gentler form of waxing) but hated having to schedule it and pay $8-20 each time, so I tried a few at-home products to take care of this pesky issue.
A college friend introduced me to the Sally Hansen line of hair removal products. After trying her brush-on kind, I purchased a similar version that comes in a tube (Crème Hair Removal Duo Kit) and has a smoothing lotion that's really calming afterwards. It was very similar to the brush on version. I have also tried the pump version, and the pump was constantly getting clogged, so I went back to the brush and have stayed with it ever since!
- New and improved clean, fresh scent
- Contains Willow Herb and Pumpkin Seed Extracts, known to help reduce the appearance of hair regrowth
- Formulated with Vitamin E, known to soften and smooth skin
- Moisturizing formula gently removes hair
Using this product is super easy. Brush some over that 'stash area, wait ~5 minutes, then wipe off against the hair growth. It's that easy!
I think it removes the unwanted hair very easily and I only have to use it about once a month or once every month and a half. The smell isn't the most pleasant, but I don't think any depilatories smell like roses.
Caution! Leaving this product on for too long CAN leave burn-like red marks, so please be careful! I have coarse, dark hair, so the 5 minutes is needed for me. If you have fine, light hair, a shorter time period may be better for you. Please read all directions enclosed and do a test patch beforehand. If you feel it starting to burn, remove it immediately.
I want to try the Sally Hansen Extra Strength All-Over Body Wax Hair Removal Kit next for my underarms and bikini area in the warmer months. Heard great things!
